what is the sky?

When I look up at night I see, well, I see the entire basis of surrealism. I see the entire basis of religion, of uncertainty, of all metaphysics. To me space, that un-deniable and supra-logical presence represents the spirit of the rebel, the permanent questioning of human derived authority structures. It represents  a natural (dis)order which cannot and will never be tamed, never be controlled. No puny human 'system' rings true in space, no puny human could exist in space, it is a no-go zone, our muscles would waste away, our minds would turn to mush.  The absolute distance between 'bodies' in space is utterly mind-boggling, between them are inconceivably huge cloud structures, plasmas, organic and in organic molecules.
Space stands as a permanent reminder of death. Space stands as a permanent reminder  - why should we accept the systems we do? I mean, really? Why? Because thats just how it is?
Space is a permanent psychic bedfellow. Space , the sky is a truth purer than a thousand western civilizations.
And the flat earthers want to put a cap on it and say its CGI .

robot on, robot hero

Nah. Nah. Just go home if you can't get a job, ya prick.
Nah, sick of the sight of ya anyway.
Nah, unemployed ? No centerlink available to the kiwis (but anyone and everyone else can get it)? Just go and die then really. Too hard box. We got it fine, so everyone should too, right? right? right?
Family going insane ? Kids killing themselves? Whys that? Youth unemployment at high levels? Its
because, after watching a young person grow up in this La decennie Brut , they all seem to feel utterly without hope. They know the truth. Its either be rich, which you never will be, or be an utter slave, all the way into your 70s. No wonder kids are killing themselves. We are told at a very young age to be nice to each other and care - but only to a point. Then you must stamp on anyone and everyone else tooth and nail and fight for number one. But only within the rules. What rules. Those rules get bent. They get bent daily. There truly seems to be no future.
Then go home. But im stuck here. Then go home. But im stuck here. Then go home. But Im stuck here.
Don't you dare tell me what to write. Don't you dare tell me to accentuate the positive. Okay I'll do it.
Okay, its all first world problems isnt it. we got it so damn good.



"We don't need another hero" Lets all go to work when we're sick, just to prove we're made of steel. I'm really dedicated to this place, i'm going to make myself sick to prove to you how much of a robot i am. No excuses now soldier. Soldier on with Coldral. Soldier on with flu shots (no excuse now, boy - no-one can afford to be sick these days). Yep - you can't afford to be human. I am more and more visualizing an Orwellian future. A boot on a human face. Humanity hates humanity. There are some who believe, literally, that they must control the masses, for our own good. We must be made docile, made pliable, made subservient.

Sylvia. Sybil. Stronzo. Schizophrenia. Pax Americana. Tax Americana? Offshore Hannity Haven?
Twice the garbage, twice the fun. Lilliputians, all. And that's logic. Thats cold logic. Thats cold warriors, warfighting.
Tango! Epsilon!
Erudite, rusty, not much. Not much to it, see...it's..it's
all surface you see. Shallow.
So lets go blow. Rant on:
(As for the future of our society. I see nothing but a dystopia.  Am I wrong here when I say that presently, the dominant drive of all business (and therefore all society) is profit by any and all means? Are shareholders the true drivers of all economic strategy - their satisfaction with a company is king, profits are to increase perpetually, growth and profit maximization is the only real aim, goal and value in life? And so, more and more clever methods are to be concocted or discovered or lifted from young interned youth rate minds to maximize profits. Whether it is out and out pay shrinkage, the gutting, weekendiztion and  templatization of all cultural agency/expression, erosion of any and all human protections, constant fee hikes, bill hikes, fee administration fees,  fee administrators fees fees, basically humans are to be farmed in their very homes and work places, willingly submitting to the great artificial intelligence monetary extraction algorhthym. Always leave a few moderately successful ones to give the impression you can make it off your own steam, make these people celbrities.  Corrupt,pay off, control and dismember all laws and regulations, all goverment, all law admninstrators, all educators, keep all interest in politics or sociology a thing for unattractive nerds and freaks, and an interest in sport and entertainment compelling, an obsession. The only sanctioned interest. Alcoholize all weekend activity, alcoholize all life. Saturate and suffocate, bring freedom (of two choices) to all nodes and vectors. Disuade and discredit the practise of religiousity and spirituality. Especially the nihilistic eastern strains. UNLESS the theology lauds unfettered profit growth and work for works sake. Start charging for air usage, toilet use in own home. Pets should also pay rent and bills. Each breath should have a fee attached. Charge people for use of the street. All human movement is to be monetized. Sleep should be monetized somehow. If we can get people employed in the dream realm, we a creating more jobs and growth.
I may be wrong, i mean , we got it so damn good right? This is the worlds most liveable city so i should really shut up shouldn't I , Brad.  It sure appears as if we are, as city dwellers, nothing but willingly captivated farm animals for a great global human agribusiness. At times it feels like we are farm animals with one-stop-shop distractions like iphones and the permanent, insidious slather of pornography/social media to help keep us sedated, obsessed and/or updated, our ever squeezed incomes are flayed living and sucked away over time, indebted, engorged with high interest credit and ever shrinking value. All criminal enterprise is part of the profit cull. All drugs will become purer, cheaper, and completely uninterested in any barriers of social class, gender, border, marketing bracket. Even Malaysia will be drowned in coke. Militarization of space and sea. Militarization of all gonads, worldwide.
If you want to assess the cultural sophistication of a nation, load up youtube on a fresh unsigned in page and you'll get the 'trending' videos of the day. Utter mindless garbage, all of it. And youtube is such a gold-mine of knowledge. Have you ever watched Australian tv? Sensationalist parochial glitz, cum spattered brain-dead fetal alco-tainment.
I see nothing good for the future. Just harder work, longer hours, everyone forced to work until a later retirement age (90 and/or death itself) ,a more hypnotized and deadened populace, no-one with any possessions, just enough for a suitcase, the rest owned by the 0.1 percent. Nothing. I see nothing. If our current abeyance and submission to the agenda of a few mega rich psychopathic oligarchs continues, doom and damnation is the only future. And no-one seems willing or able to counter it. No groups seem able to organize and no one seems to be able to catalyse and inspire.
There is nothing out there - no future. Just servitude forever. I utterly reject this world. I utterly reject our hijacked culture. I utterly reject the values this capitalist consumer system propagates. I'm supposed to love it and perpetually happy. I'm just so damn negative , right? What I see is  a  slow, generational wealth annexation -  a global squeezing of all value and wealth from the youth/masses , to a few octogenarian sociopaths at the top. Oh but it's just the way it is, the religious and non-political retort, they cant take it with them. ...but they will make damn well sure they can take as much as possible before they die.
THX-1138 is the future. The Terminator is the future. Can we stop this? Can we ? Can I? Should I try? Is there any point? Is this the bit where the anti-christ steps in with all the answers (a human earth centipede?) Monkhood is a real urge. Renunciation of this samsara, this maya. Imagine if everyone on earth woke up one day and said, no. No, im not gonna do that today, i don't care anymore. Im gonna just stay in bed. )

Alien Covenant review by Matt Middleton

Well well well. What to make of that. Better on the second watch. I really wanted to like this film. An mediocre sell out mess, this is the weyland-yutani-ization of creativity in the 21st century - anything with a high budget will suck, because the only good films these days are low budget and crewless and have nothing to do with fox. Terrible on the third watch. The less money you have to make a film, the better it will be. Its as simple as that. 2 out of 5. Best bits ....the head in the puddle, and seeing my beloved Southland on film.

debtor debtor



Today's tuning : 1.240.350.659 Ghz
______________-__________________-____
....Some strands of thought banging around over the last while.  Behold! Earth and its society is bent beyond all recognition. The world system, in my opinion, is foul, degraded, malignant, wasteful, irreversibly gore spattered and corrupt. But......is it really?  Is life on Earth simply 'what you make it'?  Is radical subjectivity a real option?  Is there a template underneath it all or are we merely a set of impermanent but ever shifting conditions lurching from one state to the next?  Should one just ignore the unnecessary suffering, blatant unfairness and permanent terror out there and get on with a relatively lucky existence in a relatively lucky country or should one attempt to 'tell it like it is?' Some see the latter stance as 'negative'.  Perhaps those a little more realist see it as 'cynicism' or 'critique'.  Some see dosing up on brutal truth as yesterdays news, as preaching to the converted, we already know the story, big deal, tell me something I don't already know.  In some societys this blog would have its operators in deep shit. In ours, it's more inconsequential noise amongst millions of equally opinionated blogs flooding cyberspace. So dang it. I'll keep the clutter up. It exists on and on and just refuses to be monetized.  This gen X ego is an extremely gunky filter. Anything written here is subjective to the core - blanket statements, sweeping, bow shocked, arching, cosmological generalisations, intoxicated frippery, repetitive motifs, long winded sentences stoked with punctuation (was gen x the last generation to master punctuation??), gleeful in its wrongfulness, fully aware of the ramifications of data entombment on the internet,  this is La Decennie Brut.

Of late I have read 'The debt resistors manual', which is available for free at strikedebt.org

Debt. What is it? Whose is it? Why is it sold? Why is it traded? Where does the money come from anyway? Who profits from debt? Is the debt-recovery industry making a profit these days? Is debt-recovery a profit centered industry too? Who lobbies government on their behalf? What is the end point for growth? What good do debt collection agencies do in this world? What is credit? What is money? When we go to sleep at night, why aren't we trotting off to our 'dream jobs' and paying 'dream bills'? Isn't it time we started monetizing sleep?  .....And what about our pets? Its time they started pulling their weight too - why do they  continue to get a free ride? They need jobs and they need to start paying rent. Insects should pay rent and bills, no excuses.
 Why are debtors the new lepers? Why is debt pushed so vehemently onto individuals, organizations and entire economies? Why do we sit back and let the memetic engineers of our age get away with the blatant psycho-social manipulation they do? Do people not see it happening? Is it another case of the slow-boiled frog? I guess we've all just rolled over and died and thanked our rapists for ending it all. Or I have at least. Or have I? I guess we're all too busy working to see it.
To take on a debt you are putting your psycho-socio-aeconomico credibility on the line, big time. To fail to repay a debt is tantamount to a global moral failure.
To fail to be able to repay a debt, whether big or small, has been carefully tailored over the centuries to indicate that you are truly the lowest of the low, you are a weakling, a sort of child, a spineless and impulsive node of irresponsibility. "A Lannister always repays his debts." They can murder and rape all they like.
To be a defaulter is to be a hopeless case,  a loser, a mousey, snivveling wreck, a sub-human. To default is to die. Whole countries are agressively pushed into austerity economics by the world bank and friends, but somehow the concept, the meme, of indebtedness has been miraculously transformed into an issue of atomistic, individual failing, of a poorly judged personal choice, of a moral, intimate, behavioural flaw.
And yet, we all know someone in the red, don't we. In fact, is there anyone out there NOT in debt? I mean, you've got good debts and bad debts. Good debts aren't even conceived of as debts. Theyre more like bills or benign, deserving transactions, a light at the end of each contractural tunnel. Those car repayments, those mortgage payments - anyone with them has been judged as reliable candidates anyway. Credit card debt, the most common form of debt, again, thats debt you've earned. Student Loan debt comes with some baggage though - true pragmatists shouldn't really even go to university anyway. To have a student loan debt means you think you are better than everyone else. And by god you better be paying it back. In an anti-intellectual age such as this one, you can bet your bottom dollar your colleague down the factory will be paying (or not) off a student loan. Probably a masters. Or phd. Fat load of good that done her right? Come on kids, get real. Get a job.
Don't, for god's sake, get one of those student loans.  Perhaps this is all part of the vast global conspiracy - to discourage university enrollment, make getting educated beyond a certain level appear foolish, unwise, costly and a lifelong liability. What better way to get 'em all into the unskilled slave market.
When the majority of folk all have bad credit - how will the banks keep up their lending? Probably by copying the practices of predatory lenders. Bigger the risk, higher the repayment interest.
So , the masses work on, keeping the world humming along, making themselves usefull. Tighter and tighter we are squeezed, more and more fees and fines are heaped upon us, the ceos gotta get those bonuses somehow, don't they.  Profit is the number one driver for the world economy and it must be accelerated and maximized at all costs. Any and all people are expendable. This growth maximization must occur into the future regardless of all and any physical limitation. In the case of physical depletion or extinction of a commodity, non-physical options must be identified, monetized, marketed, made desirable, rolled-out and made profitable post-haste. Monetize education at all levels, monetize the results of longer working hours, monetize public spaces inside and outside, increase all real estate values until bursting point, identify all and any community based govt departments local and federal, analyse potential savings and sever. Monetize all human emotions, all hormonal imbalances, all lifestyles. Demonize any and all counter cultural advocates, especially the antivaccination types.  Increase profit by increasing any and all necessary health products/interventions. Make being a human and existing basically impossible. (How on earth did they do it back before money i have no idea).

What are some great industries making lots of money these days, Molly? The gambling industry is doing real well. Weapons manufacture, military catering. (burgers!) The global pornography business. Match fixing. Monsanto continue to redefine evil with each extortionistic technological breathrough. Coal and Oil is ever profitable. Drugs of course, because the drug trade is protected, backed up, armed, trained, lawyered up and
maintained with endless faux wars and interventiins that keep the supply protected and fluid  - of course drugs are bad mkay and even though all the cool kids do it and its in your face its a personal choice at the end of the day. The global tobacco industry is profitable. Therefore they are good people because they have money. Banking, enriched by you and me and bottom trawling fee algorhythms, is making a killer profit these days. Apple computer is doing so well. And Google too. Google is a dang behemoth. Viva google. what else is pumping? Ivory? Debt consolidation? Debt retrieval? Private security? Any company with a sweat shop or three? Smart phones. Yoghurt. Dow Chemicals. Synthetic Genomics is tipped to be a long term earn.  Water, Water filtration systems. Sewerage pumps. Pneumatics.

new zealander applies for centerlink / australian applies for WINZ

Take our tax, code 33 us in every other way. Thats the ANZAC spirit ! Here I am loitering in your wonderful country, propping up at least one of your sterling unemployed 1st class Australian citizens, but if I lose my job, I guess I better start selling drugs of addiction to your children because theres no option for me now is there. The  pavement outside Flinders is looking extra cozy this winter what with the increasing population of warm blooded mammals congregating there! We'll find our cardboard, pen our story, find a spot t' squat upon and see if we can get our tax back in a paper cup! Of course, an Australian can go to NZ and get dole, or sickness benefit. As much as needed, whenever its needed.  Why don't our politicians emulate the Australian policy? Why should Australians residing in New Zealand be granted this dole? Perhaps because it is ethical to do so? It offsets the cost of looking after homeless Australians who are savaged by hypothermia while sleeping rough down Dunedin way.. Goodo. I tell ya, If I was a cabinet politician in NZ  i would go out of my way to make sure no Australian in New Zealand received any governmental assistance whatsoever. This would make sense, an eye for an eye etc. But no,  it seems our politicians are taking the moral high ground on this one. They're turning the other cheek as it were.

Here in the lucky country , welfare is pretty much there for anyone... except the kiwi. 
Kiwi go home. Kiwi kill yourself. Kiwi kill Aussie. Kiwi make me laugh.
Kiwi likes the sex. Kiwi go to jail. Kiwi in the woods. Kiwi in the closet. Kiwi makes the grade. Kiwi go home. Kiwi thinks too much.
"They'll all come over if we change the law. We don't want you here, frankly".  

Actually bud, we don't want you in New Zealand either,  unless you've 'got jobs to come back to'.

I swear you're wrong. You want me here alright. You need me. You literally need me. Without us there wouldn't be any edgy art or music going on.. Its true isn't it though, Ross, just admit it -  millenial Australian art is just so damn tame because, well, they just got it too damn good! "Oh, this piece is a sort of abstract expressionist work about my break up with my girlfriend. I had to go to the holiday house for a while to recover and paint. Luckily, I was granted the centrelink sickness benefit for a while. But that afforded me the time to really work through the seperation trauma"
I wrote this tune when i was in Bali, its about Bali. And dinners. And kosher food.

Don't lose that job r if you do, have one waiting for you. Kiwi. Kiwi hard case mate.

do aliens exist?

Do Aliens exist?
Well, come on. I mean, okay, we are here. We are an assemblage of universally distributed chemicals. So it makes sense to assume, given the right conditions, a similar evolutionary process could occur elsewhere in the universe. Just look at how many stars are in the galaxy and how many galaxies make up this universe. Staggeringly vast amounts. Life in some form is likely, in my opinion, to exist elsewhere.
But ufos, alien 'sightings' on earth. This I am not so sure about but i am not a skeptic either. I believe I actually witnessed an unidentified flying object as a child in my home town.
It was a small dark object that loomed in the overcast sky and was curiously stationary for some time. This is what at first attracted me to it, it didnt seem to move and yet was airborne. It didnt make any sense. It appeared like a reconnaisance drone. i was playing outside on the road at the time. Perhaps they were making sure i wasnt hit by a car. I did not see it leave, my attention was that of a childs.
In Melbourne we have the famous Westall High School sighting of 1966 . Extremely mysterious and a multiple sighting. Well documented. 
We have the 'disclosure project' and its archive of testimony. Thats compelling stuff. It is a pity that Steven Greer seems like such a flake. Well, he's buff at least.
The enigma of ufos and aliens has permeated my life, what with sci-fi and such. But the field truly attracts some wierd people. And some truly dodgy types - in fact all paranormal fields , like finance et al do attract freaks. Some are out and out frauds.
But there is a kernel of truth out there. The 'I know what I saw' crowd. Are they here though? Are they in cahoots wit' the governments of the wrrrrld ?
Are they? Reveal yourselves, oh alien craft!
